New AMD FirePro Graphics card keeps crashing

Hi,

 

I have 12 Monitor setup that is run by three  ATI FirePro 2460 GDDR3 512 MB cards.

 

Each card has 4 ports so each runs 4 monitors. I have been using this setup or last 5 years for displaying stock charts & using other regular applications including playing YouTube & regular videos. I DO NOT play any games at all.

 

I never had any problem with setup for last 5 years.

 

Recently one of the cards died so I bought a new one. But new one has identical specs except it has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

 

Now whenever I play YouTube videos, the new card crashes after few minutes. So 4 monitors that are connected to that video card goes blank & also keyboard & mouse freezes.

 

So I have to shut down the CPU using start button & Restart it & again all 12 monitors start working.

 

But then if I play YouTube videos, new card crashes after a while. Crashing time is random.

 

What seems to be a problem ? Is it because new card has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3 that other two cards have & thus it is not compatible with two other cards ? All cards are identical except the new one has GDDR5 instead of GDDR3.

 

Please help.

 

Thank you.

Hello georgetok,
 
Noticed that you have three ongoing threads on other forums regarding the same issue.
 
We are always happy to help when we can but we cannot safely do so if you are already receiving assistance on any other forum, doing so may lead to confusion as to whose and what guidance you are following which can be both dangerous and costly, decide on which forum you wish to continue and as a courtesy let the other/s know that assistance is no longer required.
 
Thank you for your understanding.
